    Yeah I was on the fence but all this outrage is selling it for me. It's not racist for all the gang members to be black in the game. I live in London, every crack dealing, granny robbing gang member I see is black. That's not racism, that's realism.

    CDPR has made some response videos to peoples questions on tumblr (of all places). Don't know if there's anything interesting or relevant or just a bunch of weirdos asking about bestiality, but here's the link:

    There used to be console games where FOV wouldn't go over 60 degrees years back but at this point any game that adds first person view tends to also put a FOV slider, so this is not an issue.

    The other thing is that this is supposed to be a shooter. If it was a melee action game like witcher 3, sure, you can play third person. Fuck third person shooters, most of which invariably devolve into cover based game.

    So the game is going to support RTX, and this is going to be an nVidia sponsored title.

    :negative:

    So for all the talk of no DRMs and no platform exclusivity and such they go ahead bend over to proprietary tech implementation to limit us poor plebs/cucks whose only claim to raytracing is butthurt tears tracing salt on our faces to second rate visuals and hand me down experiences.

    Well for sure I will be 'testing' the product very thoroughly to see if the requirements can attest to certain level of 'acceptable' graphical fidelity. ;)

    Witcher 3 already had an NVIDIA partnership. You can just not enable it. And CP2077 won't even have RTX GI, just reflections.

    Nothing but a 2080ti can run a ray traced modern AAA game at a reasonable frame rate, and i'm not even sure 2080ti owners, most of whom probably also have 144hz 4k gaming monitors and such, probably think the "improvements" are worth the massive loss in performance.

    Ray tracing is a scam because what made this technology unfeasible until now was the massive performance hit and they haven't solved that issue at all. I'd bet anything software run ray tracing won't be much far off from ray tracing run on whatever fancy hardware module they put on those cards, if at all.

    they are bootlickers that are easily influenced by hype, especially michael huber. I don't think he's ever said one critical thing against a game he was excited for ever.

    it's going to support raytracing.

    RTX is not raytracing, nor raytracing is propietary, AMD can release whenever they want GPU's with raytracing support, but they decided to not do it yet. But, as next gen consoles will have raytracing and an amd GPU, you can expect something from them next year. Same for intel GPU probably

    Graphic fidelity is futile. If you want realistic graphics, look around. Artstyle is all that matters and the graphic fidelity arms race is part of the reason why AAA+ companies are so hellbent on this race to bottom in everything else.

    "Next gen" consoles are going to have raytracing sort of like current gen consoles have 4k.

    That's arguable, but the problem here is not actually fidelity versus style, but that there's no actual "fidelity" going on in those AAA graphical games. All the effects used in modern games are borrowed from film and photography. You can argue whether it is better to have style over graphical advancement but when it comes to the latter "fidelity" to real life would be a welcome change from what we have now, which is post-processing masturbation with shit filters slapped on top of it.

    You wish AAA games were being made to look like real life, but that's not the case at all.

    All that post-processing was at first done to mask the low graphic fidelity and often for consoles to try to replicate movies to be "cinematic", why all games need to be "cinematic" is beyond me except that cinema as a visual media had more legitimacy. Nowadays games add stuff like motion blur in 3rd person, depth of field that makes the game seem as if you are underwater, everything glowing as if your screen has been glazed. So tasteless.

    I mean, I don't know. If even a simulated raytracing like this reshade can enhance the art style of a game so much, I really can't imagine what a proper raytracing global illumination could do



    Leaving the buggy snow area aside, on some scenes it looks like the fucking VGX trailer.

    Also is it just me or having Keanu Reeves in Cyberpunk put anyone else out of the setting and the game too? The guy plays one role and I can't help but feel like a side character in John Wick or Matrix.

    I am now glad I never watched either the Matrix or a John Wick flick.

    You'll have to watch his face for so long that at some point the brain doesn't give a fuck and you'll think Reeves looks like Silverhand and not the other way around

    Nope, he is a great spirit and a hero of Cyberpunk genre in general. No one better then him for that role.
    Thats what the first game footage missed, a strong presence of a strong character.

    They also removed almost all behind times "punks" with mohawks from this presentation (although maybe not from the game entirely) which makes it look more futuristic instead of 70s retro future. Good calls all around.

    Yeah retrofuturism is really overrated, imagine a future do not copy a past.

    It's not like there's no first person games with good melee combat, Dark Messiah and Shadow Warrior 2013 are a thing

    Better, Future unavoidably has elements of the past in it, but they shouldn't be more then elements. This is an established setting already so it doesnt make much sense to turn it into some other kind of setting.

    Intentionally creating a retro futuristic setting from scratch is another thing.
